Is the governor right?: a study on cutting Texas property Texas [i.e. taxes]
MetadataShow full item record
In the past few years the state of Texas, under the direction of Governor George W. Bush, has seriously considered the idea of cutting property taxes. Since schools are financed mainly through property taxes in Texas, this is an extremely important and volatile issue. I chose to conduct my research on this particular topic. In my project, I looked at the history and fairness of the property tax in Texas, and alternative solutions to this state's impending school finance crisis. To accomplish these tasks, I sent out questionnaires to 500 Texas residents, researched other states, and came up with two possible solutions. This thesis will show that Governor Bush was right to pursue property tax relief, however, his methods for achieving an equitable and beneficial solution for Texas residents were flawed. Instead, the state of Texas should either implement a state income tax or use educational vouchers in place of the current property tax system.
